Got back from a Sunday afternoon session and am seriously considering never playing Sunday afternoon's again. My god what a dead/small buy-in, nitty game. Blech. Anyway, this hand happened. Preflop is bad - I called out of boredom tilt.
1/3 NL 10 handed
UTG+1 - $150, UTG+2 - $175, HJ - $300
UTG folds, UTG+1 limps, UTG +2 limps, fold fold, HJ limps, CO folds, BTN folds, I raise to $15 with 8:diamond:T:diamond: in SB, BB folds, UTG+1 calls, UTG+2 raises to $30, HJ calls, I call, UTG+1 calls
Flop: A:diamond:7:club:9:heart: (pot: ~$120)
I check, UTG+1 checks, UTG+2 checks, HJ checks
Turn 6:spade: (pot: ~$120)
I bet $75
UTG+1 goes all-in for $120
UTG+2 goes all-in for $145
At this point I turn over my hand and show the nut straight. Both all-in villains look at my hand and a couple of people not in the hand say things like 'he's got the straight/nuts'.
UTG+1 (a really old dude, had to be 80+ and just did everything sloooowly) looks at his hand, looks at the board, back to his hand, looks at my cards, looks at the board, and after ~30 seconds tables 77 for a full house. Well, that's an annoying slow roll, but whatever.
This whole time UTG+2 (a younger guy who had been taking forever in all of his hands over the most trivial decisions) is also looking at his hand and the board. Dealer says 'show or fold' and he still sits there for probably 20 seconds after the old dude tables his full house. Finally he tables AA for rivered quads! And there I am sitting on the other side of the table having just gotten slow rolled in the same hand by two different people. Huzzah. Younger dude apologized to me later in the next hand claiming he was just stunned that he had quad aces. I told him not to worry about it - I had a funny story to tell now.
